to supervisor chu and started working with her office to determine whether or not this proposed new use, the vocal point insurance agency would be in compliance with the new neighborhood commercial district. and after communicating with them and meeting with them, i was not in on those meetings for the most part of those communications, but it was from the office and her assistant, that this is not the type of use that could be put into this space in the neighborhood district without a conditional use application and approval. it is not what is considered an active use under the new neighborhood commercial district rules and the purpose of the new neighborhood commercial districts and there were four of them found it out in the sunset was to create active storefronts with people coming in and out and the foot traffic that would in turn lead to more business for the surroundings area. and so, the supervisor office actually made to the planning department about the new use when we finally learned what it was. because that complaint went to the planning department to the supervisor office
of the storefronts that is in question and the changing of the use to vocal point. and while it seems that most of the attention to this property came about because of the conditional use application that they have on file for a wireless facility, what is going on here and the activity is not related to the wireless facility that they have an application in for but in relation for the change of use for this business and professional service use. the definition, well back up a little bit. so the terevel cd which was created last year does tend to add a little bit of confusion. the business and professional businesses listed adds the principally permitted use. however when you look at the street frontage controls it cross-references section 145.4 which is 145.4 c, which lists the active commercial uses and it says that if it is not on that list, then it needs a conditional use authorization and then the planning commission heard this legislation in june of last year and it was very clear to them what the supervisor's intent was on this legislation and so i have highlighted on the overhead is a pa
the appeal and deny the permits and require them to come in for the proper conditional use authorization. >> will you look at the back of the issue permit and tell me what it says around the portions for city planning? >> your planners are not doctors are they? >> they are trained as such. no. it appears as if it was written na and so i don't know if that was done by building department staff, but they felt that it was not a change of use, because it is not representing a change of use but it is represented as a tenant improvement and one conference room and upgrade the existing bath to ada and there is no change of use proposed. but there would not be a change of use under the building code. but there is a change of use in this case under the planning code and it should have been routed to us and it should have been clear what the proposed use would be. >> you are saying that it was never routed to you at all. >> it does not appear to. it has. >> commissioners, i will just keep it brief. we did get a complaint on december the 5th that there was work without a permit. i che
and hours in the field, with a team of folks who made liberal use of students from san francisco stay and berkeley. secondly we had a lot of emphasis on -- if you will, again information with the task force. so we could come up with interesting analysis, but we wanted to make sure that people experienced that in their real lives of it's not always the case that data is accurate. people know for more and lastly we used visualization and mapping. spreadsheets and documents just don't work and you have to create pictures and that was an informative part of that approach. it was a fun process and we enjoyed it very much. others took over after i was gone and i hope you see it was very informative to the plan. i will introduce the next speaker. >> thank you, peter. i'm john, the ceo of tyco, and trying to maximize the affordable housing for its resides and communities. i want to address finally the likely outcomes in about over the next 20 years, if you adopt this rezoning. what will actually happen in the real world? this is a major upzoning. both residential and commercial. it incre
, that deals with compatibility issues, land use issues. that actually can be done, we had to make many compromises and we bring them to you, and we hope that you have find that they were well-reasoned and support and adopt this plan. thank you. >> thank you to jim niko and the other speakers for providing that kind of background information, which i definitely would not have been able to provide. i am going to move forward with the more streamlined version of the nuts and bolts. obviously we would be available to elaborate or to answer any questions that you may have. but to begin western soma is part of south of market and that was essentially created in 1990 and mixed-use districts, which were somewhat new to the city. east soma is part of eastern neighborhoods, took part of this chunk of the western soma was essentially rezoned and replace the rest of the soma area. and we'll have that removed from the general plan. western soma will essentially plug into eastern neighborhoods, which was approved and became effective in 2009. western soma as you said was removed from that process i
or professional service use to locate there given the lack of visibility from the street. * the second floor of the property consists of [speaker not understood] offices of mental health providers. given that any use on the first floor would have to be compatible with the existing use, it seemed a good use for the ground floor would be additional offices for medical health providers. our office contacted the planning department and confirmed that the only way to remedy the situation, one that we felt worthy of remedying was through legislation. legislation was obviously needed in this case due to the fact that new medical service uses are prohibited in the sacramento street ncd which runs from lion's street to spruce street on sacramento. when drafting legislation we wanted to make sure that we respected the concerns that created the prohibition in the first place. in 1987 when these controls were in place there were concerns that medical service uses were displacing neighborhood service -- neighborhood serving businesses and residential units. i really should not have ran up those stairs. e
use mix. two bedrooms or more and other physical controls and whatever you fit on the site is the appropriate density. there are minimum ground floor ceiling heights in most districts to allow for more gracious non-residential uses on the ground floor. parking maximums instead of minimums are already in place. there are a lot of very large blocks and they would be required for very large projects to which possible extend alley connections. we do have new requirements for non-residential open space. open space requirements for non-residential requirements and perhaps more importantly, in terms of impact fees, there will be no new impact fee for western soma. again, this will plug into the existing eastern neighborhoods, the existing rates will apply. all of the existing processes and procedures will then apply to western soma as well. there are a few differences worth pointing out. western soma poured out of eastern neighborhoods do its own process and it would be expected it's not proposed to be exactly like eastern neighborhoods. some of the difference worth pointing out
for conditional use authorization is being proposed for continuance to february 28th, 2013. i have no other items proposed for continuance and i have no speaker cards. >> is there any public comment on the one item proposed for continuance? seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioners? commissioner sugaya. >> move to continue item number 1 to february 28th. >> second. >> on that motion to continue 795 folsom to february 28th, commissioner antonini? >> aye. >> commissioner borden? >> aye. >> commissioner hillis? excuse me, commissioner moore? >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya? >> here -- i mean, yes, aye. [laughter] >> commissioner wu? >> aye. >> and commission president fong? >> aye. >> so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously 6 to 0 and placed you under your consent calendar. all matters listed hereunder constitute a consent calendar, are considered to be routine by the planning commission, and will be acted upon by a single roll call vote of the commission. there will be no separate discussion of these items unless a member of the commission, the public, or staff so requests
about. my concern is turning the property into restaurant use and with all the nuisance that goes along with, that the machine noise from the restaurants, loud music, loud voices, public urination, et cetera. we already have a very large density of restaurants and bars in the area. i would like to understand what is to stop the rest of the building from falling into restaurant use, if this changes? if ever the castro country club should leave, there is a space there with the backyard patio space, that if that ever turned into a restaurant the quality of my neighbors and my building would be compromised such that we would have to move and sell your properties. we made a choice to live in an urban areas with all the benefits and problems that go with that. my boys go to sleep every night with the hum of the restaurant machines and disco beat from the bars and restaurants and we're fine with the existing level of if any place, but we don't want anymore. the existing restaurant is already encroaching on existing space and they are in violation and out of permit. as someone allude to ir, t

, could staff look into that a little bit and give it -- maybe just give us a short, like a memo or something on what's going on with that. given that other entertainment seems to have caused some issues. and then under the building inspection, there was discussion and possible action -- i'm just reading this -- on a proposed ordinance amending the building code to establish mandatory seismic retrofit for wood frame buildings of three or more stories and containing five or more dwellings. could we also get some information -- okay, all right. >> in fact, on your advance calendar as a future presentation -- >> all right, okay, great. thank you. >> commissioner borden. >> yes, i would also -- i also got to know lou spadia. i went to the chamber in his years he would actually still come in. it was always such a delightful person to have around. people don't know what the bay area sports all of fame is, when you're in the united terminal at san francisco international airport, it has the plaques of the athletes. it's a great idea and a way to make our airport terminal very local and

approved and that does not make good land use sense of we want the west soma radmx to work well with the new housing and showplace. and i know radmx is not protecting existing residential uses because many of the proposed sites that are medmx are parking lots and light enough use. pearces with currently uses are zoned along 7th street between -- excuse me, along 7th between th and bluxom to make it more contiguous. thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> good afternoon. i earn half my income as a piano player and i probably played in every single club, including paradise lounge. i move to that area with the hope i would be closer to the places i play. i think it's important to remember i moved into the neighborhood and knew what the noise would be. it should not be possible for those moving in complaining about the noise that is going on as existing. thank you. >> thank you, mr. wick. thank you for being here. >> supervisors my name is vlad coug, the owner and operator of the butter bar. i wanted to first thank you all for being open and conscientious of entertainment in s
side of the street, there is an elderly man who requires a wheelchair, one woman past 80 who uses a walker, another woman past 80, a man in his late 70s who has need he knee replacements and uses a cane. others in their 70s. these residents could not tolerate any part of the sidewalk made steeper. this is to notify the committee that if this construction is granted without disability issues addressed, you can rest assured there might be lawsuits with requests for punitive damages. * please contact public works department disability access coordinator kevin jensen at 30 van ness avenue. i tried to get in touch with him, but i'm not computer savvy and nobody answers their phone, you know. so, anyway, i would appreciate it if this would be looked into from a disability point of view. >> thank you. >>> thank you. >> are there any other members of the public who would like to comment? >>> my name is lou randal. i live at the corner of peralta and [speaker not understood]. as you go through, there must be some traffic controls put in before construction starts. we've had one car destroy
's degree in transportation planning and land use planning. what paul gave me was a detector to figure out when planning is coming at me and when they are lieing? when i think we have done is pushed the boundaries, where we have done the best deal that the planning would introduce to the commission of the plan had conditions. they wouldn't let it be a completely citizen-driven process. supervisor wiener talking about funding for various impact fees we tried to push the limits by create a new way to get more benefits from the developers, and then having developers complete with extra benefits to ensure that the community get more, leveraging scarcity for benefit. when planning and the mayor pull all the politic strings and the task force has burned-out, it's not kosher. i think the win is saving the residential enclase district. by the same token, we don't want to mix the uses. so on folsom street, why allow more entertainment on folsom street? we need more of the seattle-based models to allow residents to have primary stake holder status in determining the out come of the communities bec
>> that was kind of my understanding, is our conditional use is conditioned on the formation and approval of the sud, but that's understood we can take that action and encourage the board of supervisors to establish the sud that would allow this to happen. and i remember that happening on quite a few projects. i can't bring them up line and verse, it's happened. perhaps zoning administrator sanchez can -- >> yes, recently in december with the adoption of the western soma plan, the item immediately after that was an approval of a project under the western soma plan. the western soma plan still hasn't been to the land use committee, but that would probably not become adopted and effective until april or may. and, so, the approval that this commission gave was contingent upon the successful adoption of those rezoning efforts. so, this is something that this commission has done numerous times. there are many, many examples of this. >> thank you. and finally, as to the approvals themselves that are before us, i think they seem to be fairly formulated for the project owner who wou
a lot of tension. this is a great time for us to establish that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. carson. >> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is tom [speaker not understood] i am a small business owner and raising my family in san francisco and i work here. i bought 280 7th street. my job is to provide for my family, my employees, and pay my bills. i am proud to call san francisco my home. i am support small businesses like me. i purchased this business four years ago and have been waiting for zoning to be decided. please ensure i can have a modern and safe business. thank you. >> thank you. i'm going to call ten more speakers. [ reading speakers' names ] >> >> marqueza company and i'm here to request that the southwest corner of 5th and brannan, which is 601 brannan, assessor's block 3785, lot 132 be reclassified so the mou district . the purpose of the change would be to allow that site, which houses the architecture department of aau to be considered as conditional use, which is the way it could be under the current zoning. the conditional use was filed in 2012 and actually th
the machines, using the machines for his future projects or reselling them on the open market. >> so, there is a salvage value -- >> owe yes. these machines -- the machines that will be used to build the central subway are essentially new machines. * oh, these machines have a fairly, very -- they can be reused and refurbished and they're used throughout the world in other projects that would use that same diameter. >> great. the one final question while i have you here, the north beach station option is clearly not before us today. but my understanding is nothing we're doing here would preclude that possibility. in other words, it actually would make it possible to have a north beach station by continuing the tunnel to north beach and providing a site where possibly a future station pending environmental review could be built? >> that's correct. we're not doing anything that would preclude a north beach station or make it more difficult to construct in the future. >> thank you very much. i appreciate it. well, a few comments along those lines. i'm just going to make -- sir, thanks f
moreen beganin who is the chief financial officer and i think she gives us very accurate information and tell uses the direction we need togo in. i know the chief and i have faith in her and it's well placed. we have made fewer arrests and i think that will continue to occur. again we are focusing our efforts on moving forward but if there is anything you would like me to address now i'm on the administration side of the police department please don't hesitant to let me know either face-to-face or by email you all have my email address. >> thank you chief. >> any questions for me? okay thank you. >> good evening director griffin. >> good evening commissioners. this is a follow up presentation to one that was made back in september of last year, and we talked at that time about arrest reporting in san francisco and specifically about ucr, race reporting and ethnicity reporting. the first two slides are from that presentation just as a refresher what we talked about then and the remaining three are from this presentation. so going back what we talked about is why we were reportin
that the city funds generally speaking. so, the basic way that the model works, is that tenants will contact us with building repair issues that they have not been able to resolve once they have taken the first steps of you know, contacting their landlord and perhaps, even writing letters, etc. and we are able then to sort of help them navigate through the system and get in contact with dbi when we need to. and then, as jamie mentioned work with the land lords as well. we contact the apartment association in some cases and have them sort of work on the other end speaking to the landlord complying with codes and all of that. and we have had great success. the other thing that it allows us to do is a little bit of a more of a case management model. some of our counseling that we do it is really where we are only able to sort of do an in and out and advise them a little bit and send them on the way and with this, we are able to do follow up calls and we send out post cards saying has your issue been resolved and we will track the cases thoroughly. if the people are not getting anywhere, we are abl
, and we are your appointees and we want to thank you for having us here. we will begin by expressing our appreciation to all of those who help us in our work on behalf of the over 15,000 english language learners in our district, and we did provide you with some written data which i will be loosely following in my beginning here. we're very grateful to our english language students and our representatives who continue to attend our bcc meetings and they voice their concerns to us and we're able to bring these issues forward, and to garner attention to them, and to make remedies. we're thankful for our translators who attend every meeting that we have, both spanish and can tonenies and some of the things that we were able to -- [inaudible] strict and with the help of our -- kristina wong and jennifer fong, the two people we work most closely with. we have a english learner program guide and we didn't have this before and it's also translated into english -- into spanish and conton easy and serves as a guide to our english learner family who is find coming to epc and to the district ver
of review, the board shall use in deciding a case such as this, shall only be in the case of error or abuse of the zoning administrator. that has not been shown. all of the technical procedures were followed correctly as will be corroborated by the zoning administrator's testimony. i will not bother reading the five procedures that everything went through. >> just an over review. >> pardon me? >> are you, confused? >> the sole reason for the appellant's case is that they are not happy with the out come of the discretionary hearing and the wish to further impede the building process. the appellant's brief provides no new evidence and does not attempt to justify any zoning error or abuse of discretionary power. >> you should focus your comments on the denovo review. >> it means that we are hearing it fresh, it applies to the zoning determinations and which there is not. >> it is a building permit. >> i understand. >> so, i guess that i am not quite prepared. i will pull out my file on the, which you probably have a copy of that i attached which was the discretion review hearing. and the point
of housing to come up with the best use of this site to meet his department's needs. the affordable housing is important to note will be delivered in a balanced manner throughout the project and not all at once or at the beginning or end. but have a phased approach and deliver it throughout the build out period. the project is very pleased to have been recognized by the city's planning department as one of three potential eco district sites in san francisco and that is a recent announcement that you may have heard about a few weeks ago and we have been even prior to that actively looking at different sustainability measures that will conform the eco district including centralized waste collection and things of that nature and the think that the recognition of the planning is encouraging. and so we are exploring as many options as we can to make this site a model for the city and a model for other developments. >> of course, the project will be built with a comprehensive traffic demand management plan. i think that we as mike mentioned we benefit from peter albert's work on the water front a
of the taxicabs. they're taking the airport rides. these people aren't insured as ed heely pointed out. these used to be considered gypsy cabs, not because they're using an app. somehow they're innovative entrepreneurs. so, you guys have to do something about this or forget about making any money. you ruined the lives of a lot of drivers already. come on, do something. you know, hire some investigators out there. do your job. >> thank you. anyone else care to address the board under the public comment? okay, seeing none public comment period is closed. director brinkman. >> could we please, director reiskin, get some kind of update on where we stand with not only hiring -- budgeting to hire new inspector to taxi administrative services, but also just where we stand on what we can do about lift inside car and car to go? i did read the new puc rulings. i have to admit i'm a little lost as to where that leaves us and what our options are now. i think it would be really helpful to get an update on that. i know it concerns -- it concerns all of us as city people and taxi riders. >> especially the insur
more of an argument for both of them, but i don't think the other one will be for us if this passes. since most of their business is delivery, if you have them closer to each other, you can have drivers driving less distance, burning up less gas and generally be a little bit more favorable to the environment, if you are not going further distances to deliver pizza. also, it is nice to have something that is walkable in a neighborhood. a lot of times you come home and want to get a quick bite and you don't want to have to move your car again or take a bus to get something to eat. you just want to get some food and go home and there are quite a few residences in this area. a lot of parking lot apartment buildings and condos and they mentioned they are getting a higher percentage of walkout traffic in addition to just delivery. it's replacing an existing eating and drinking establishment. that the present owner testified that his price point was too high to be successful. and you know, it just wasn't going to work. so either have a vacant place or you will have this. and finally, lo
more information on where we can reside if there is going to be a ban completely exile us out of the city, but now that i am hearing what is going on that the programs are trying to find places for us i will try to find out a little bit more. i appreciate you guys doing what you can, but having a ban -- i know it's more of industrial vehicles that are being a problem than rv's, but i know a lot of the homeless people they recycle and some people don't clean up after themselves. they leave big messes and i think us being in rv's we try to contain our habitation. we have our bathroom for sanitation reasons. there is no really -- you know what? this is an idea for you guys to have more bathrooms or like out houses in some areas -- >> thank you. >> for sanitary reasons -- >> thank you. >> because a lot of the businesses won't allow to you walk in. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> [inaudible] >> thank you. thank you. >> hello. my name is isaac and i just have a couple of things that are on my mind. i was just wondering why -- okay. so the city is trying to fix the hom

makes it impossible for the people to use that area because they can't sit down there or use the space if it is not a flat area. number two, it is going to attract a lot of newspapers and other flying objects that will fly around and you will have one employee spending most of their time picking the junk off of those things, i think that a flatter type of foliage would be practical and if you are going to have a few taller trees and paik them some of it less apt to catch garbage and also maybe make them month minimal and there will more space and light. because you are trying to capture as much light as you can. the same token, i think that there is a rendering of the space between floors, where you have some planters and it looked kind of wild grass coming out of there, again a little tall. you might be better be having more colorful like annuals these are just minor points and i think that it will lighten it up a little as is typically the case in many areas, we don't have as many in san francisco, we we have planter boxes outside of window and they are colorful in cities a

. and that you need to provide us with sufficient information, not yes, no, you have to explain it. we have modified the application, several times in order for them to do that. but to tell them what they should say, i think is i tend to agree with josoline. >> let me add, not necessarily for a script, but a for certain permits have you to provide neighbors with a plan. and have them sign a form that says, they have seen the plan, and that they have been given a number that they can call if they have any problems. that is an example. >> but, yeah, like, if there is like a light impact issue that is going to effect the neighbors, i think that noise is definitely something that i would think merits, i don't want to put the applicants into so much burden to put in an application but there should be some minimum structure and guidance around what out reach looks like. that is not necessarily spoon-feeding them the dialogue. they can figure out themselves how to say it but you have to cover concern information in an out reach plan. >> there has been some neighborhood out reach, i have seen or we
to us or maybe there was a language barrier and here, our groups are actually were absolutely were crucial to organizing these individuals and getting that information to us and this frequently happens where we will have a situation like this in an apartment building or even in an srl in which the organization will occur so the inspector will know that this is going to happen, and they will allow enough time for each individual to let them in and show them the conditions. which would not happen without this program. we might not see what is behind those closed doors, especially in an apartment buildings or residential hotels or other residential uses where people are afraid or don't understand what their rights are. so that is why it is a great illustration of where this program is right now. thank you. >> good morning, commissioners, my name is page, i am a counselor, housing rights counselor and we are based in the commission district and also have an office in oakland. >> so they help us to manage the cases better and insure the case resolution since the workers working with the
that this is a very good project and i think that it is exactly what we need one speaker spoke about mixed use and i think that is clearly, there is going to be people, more people living here, the people who will not only work here, but also will take care of their nighttime activities and make it a much more vibrant area of the city. and then someone else spoke about the entitlement for a project that may be sold in the future. and the entitlement that goes with the project if we think that it is the proper project then we should entitle it and regardless if it is sold to another entity, that entity is bound by our conditional use or in this case, it is not a 309, i think that it is a 323 approval, i forget the exact number. but the same rules apply. so those are my feelings, i think that it is real good, and i would like to see a little bit of work on the design and trying to make sure that it is as contextal as possible. particularly with the rich buildings of show place square. >> mr. moore? >> i want to speak to both projects because i believe that it is the transformational power that the con
